Indeed it does YC, well done on the weight loss and miles.
No point being too skinny at this stage, still got loads of training to do and lurgy to avoid! BMI dead on 20 so if I lose 2kg by VLM I'll be down to 19 and 7 st 12.
Well done AGF's OH!
4 miles easy tonight and does not feel like I ran yesterday. Think tomorrow will be a double, a short easy morning TM run and have been persuaded to run with a club tomorrow night - eek! Will possibly be a one off as never ready to run by 7pm and they are fast.
Well done to Mrs AGF.
Well done on everyone's training.
I'm a typical accountant - as I'm lardy with high body fat % I go for the 'good' statistic regardless!
Early alarm set for tomorrow's run and heating on extra early - if it comes on as still not fixed. Heating bloke has been round 5 times now.
PS I do know that playing with numbers is carp as the proof of the pudding's in the running....run well and the numbers will follow.
Jason - ha ha ha. You know that's going to be in the back of Fiona's mind the next time he calls to "fix" the heating
Fiona - well done on the race result. I wouldn't call your time poor in windy conditions. Splits were pretty consistent considering!!!
YC - go off road in the winter, more grip. Generally. And it hurts less if you fall over!
All this talk of weight loss, IDK. It's Christmas
Plenty of time for hard work in the New Year
Sorted out the problems showing the images [turned out to be filename related].
View of Graig Fan Ddu [the initial ridge we ran along] from Pen Y Fan:
View of the remainder of the Pen Y Fan ascent [I was about half way I suppose]:

"Lardy with high body Fat %" so who was that slim women I met last year?.Watch out for that heating bloke lol.
Jayc great photos, been up Pen Y Fan a few times in the late 70's early 80's.
AM6 Well done for getting out nice and icy here...
AGF enjoy your off road running.
6 miles this morning Tempo nice to see the LH moving back.
Nice running AGF. Out myself for the second 6 mile run of the day .
If you're "lardy" FC then heaven knows what that makes me at 85k 5.7 miles today avoiding Christmas shopping
AGF - nice mileage; you'll enjoy getting off road, it fast became my favourite type of run.
NP - Good double session. I was *thinking* of possibly running to work and back tomorrow, be about 5 miles either way. Depends how icy it is for the bike in the morning; if it's too dodgy I may well run!
OH - Top way of avoiding the crowds
4.75 mile off road trail run with work colleagues at lunchtime [our 'Xmas off-site' run]. One of the girls brought her border collie Poppy along, who continually demonstrated how easy it is to run up and down hill
17.2 mile mountain bike ride this evening. Plenty of ice to break and temp down to -4.8c at one point. My mates freehub froze and there's only one easy way to fix that, and other than walking home you're left with little alternative
Its cold today .........8 miles managed though
Love those photos jayc. I'm going walking in the Cairngorms on Sunday so think I'll see some snow there too. -7 this morning in town, very cold!
Good that the rest paid off AGF. jason I'm sure that a day's rest will be a positive for you.
Nice double NP - are you doubling up on the tempo runs again?
I did a double on Tuesday, 3 miles easy in the morning then out in the evening with the club. It was off road but not too bad, just trail. I always just use my road shoes but might buy an off road pair. Did 7.42 miles and had to put a lid on the numbers OCD since I was with company, can't wait to get that 0.58 done before the end of the week! After the run went into the gym and did my weights session. 6.25 miles done last night on the treadmill with 5 miles at 7:26mm pace.
